Lip Liner Convert.

I'm ashamed to say I've only just got on board with the whole lip-liner thing. However after watching Amelia Liana applying lip liner as an all over lip product, I know I needed to try. I've never understood the importance of lining lips, but I'm beginning to see what the hype is all about. 

I began my lip liner journey with purchasing some of the Essence lip liners, which are an absolute steal at £1 each. I initially picked up the middle pinky shade which is number 12 Wish Me a Rose, this is a gorgeous pink your lips but better shade and goes amazingly well with my all time favourite lipstick - MAC Patisserie. 

After being super impressed with my first shade, I then went and picked up 08 Red Blush and 11 In The Nude, which are gorgeous colours and will certainly match well with some of the lipsticks in my stash. 

For the price these are incredible. The staying power is great and although these are quite drying as a full lip colour, they help your lipstick stay in place and give you a much more defined shape. I have fallen in love with these and I feel like I certainly need to pick up a few more shades and maybe try another brand. Of course, I have my eye on the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk but now I will stick to this budget friendly alternative.

  1. These sound really good, the 'Wish me a Rose' is an especially pretty colour! I have to admit, I've never used lip liner either- I tend to just go straight ahead with lipstick- so these might be a good one for me to try out!

    P.S I have a giveaway on my blog at the moment if you'd like to take a look! :)

  2. I really want to try out the Essence lip liners, I never used to use them either but now I'm a total convert - it makes your lipstick look so much neater and it makes them long lasting too, nice post :-)

  5. I am definitley liking this lipliner trend :)
    My favourite lipliner is by Rimmel - Eastend snob which is just gorgeous and easy to apply.
    Also, it is really inexpensive and a dupe for the expensive Charlotte tilbury pillowtalk.

    Thank you for posting, I hope you have a great day! ♥

  8. I have just been converted to lip liners too, and now can't go without. I love the Barry M liners as they are so cheap so its the perfect way to try them.
